Casa de la Familia

Volunteer and Internship Opportunities

Volunteer and intern experiences are tailored for each individual. While interns and volunteers are very valuable, our client population is as well. When working with us, expect to begin with office duties, as office duties are a core of our day to day operations. When we see you do your best work, we may involve you with more tasks. Volunteers and interns may assist Casa de la Familia in outreaching in  health fairs, as well as attending and/or running workshops, clinical trainings, support groups, on site interventions, fundraisers and more. Before our volunteers or interns make patient contact, they must have a 40 hour domestic violence training certificate. Fortunately, Casa de la Familia holds trainings throughout the year to make this possible at no cost to the volunteer/intern.
